The Trojans should consider being an independent.

What if USC decided to leave the Pac-12 and just be an independent program like Notre Dame?

One Trojans' writer says it's something that should be considered.

Ryan Abraham, the owner and publisher of, says USC needs to "consider" the independence route.

SB Nation went into deep detail on the possibility, pointing out some of the reasons why the Trojans' fan base is upset right now.

Most notably, the Pac-12 schedule kind of screwed USC this year.

The loss that kept USC out of the playoff - a defeat at Washington State - came on a weird Friday night game. It was a short week for the Trojans and it showed. The Pac-12 has had multiple Friday night contests for its premier teams and losses are often.

What do you think, USC fans?
